Biography

“This album feels like a giant step into uncharted territory for me,” Steve Martin says of Love Has Come for You, his remarkable new collaboration with Edie Brickell. “When we started, we thought we were just playing around. But when we finished, we realized we weren't.”

Although the new musical partners have already built widely-loved individual bodies of ... Read more in Amazon's Steve Martin Store

4.0 out of 5 stars From Frisco To Denver Goes The Wild & Crazy Guy October 22, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Steve Martin's second comedy LP begins somewhat inauspiciously and then segues to a more raucous performance before an audience as wild & crazy as the titular Festrunk brother.

W&CG begins at The Boardinghouse nightclub in San Francisco; the first three tracks sound like outtake material from the Let's Get Small performances. Here, though, Steve sports a rougher, less inhibited edge, such as when he boasts that he gets his drinks at half-price. He runs down a list of bogus books he's authored - the funniest is How To Get Along With Everyone, which he coauthored with someone he doesn't get along with - and then pontificates on language in his own inimitable fashion.

He tackles language again late in the second track amid pieces on philosophy, religion (Steve finds that The Lord has tallied the times he's used His name in vein, and it numbers 1,000,006), and college - feeling humiliated over the greatness of Leonardo Da Vinci, Steve takes up juggling, then outlines a dirty trick to play on impressionable three-year-olds and comments on his awkward negotiation with the French language during a recent vacation to Paris.

After denouncing the audience as paranoid, Steve does a nice banjo riff before mangling a portion of I'm In The Mood For Love.

The opening minute of track Four takes place at The Boardinghouse with a bogus financial disclosure by Steve; when he notes his desire to sell out a show at $800 per ticket, we then segue to the far more raucous atmosphere of Red Rocks in Denver, where Steve goes into his Festrunk brother routine. He resumes his Festrunk identity when he lectures Americans on their naive methods regarding dating.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good piece of the past. April 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
For any who want to see Steve Martin at his rocketing beginnings (when some of us thought he would ONLY be a standup comic) this is a great companion piece to "Let's Get Small." Though that cd sounds like a club date, this has some material not used on that first cd, along with live "stadium" stuff that Martin did following the first cd.

I actually saw him opening night at the Universal Amphetheater, with opening band THE BLUES BROS. - whose "Briefcase Full of Blues" was recorded later that week at these string of shows.

Funny stuff here, some of it dated, but if you were a fan at the time, or if you never heard Martin stand up you will like this. "King Tut" is great and should never be forgotten...it is worth the price of this cd alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars A WILD AND CRAZY CD!!!! February 8, 2001
By ssj
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best, no the VERY BEST Steve Martin work from my point of view. I recently gotten ahold of A Wild and Crazy Guy CD and it brought back some very veeeerrrry funny memories from when it first came out in 1978. I was very young and to this day, I still hear King Tut rolling in my head. I can't go anywhere without hearing this on my headset and not laugh myself silly walking down the street to which people may think I'm crazy. This is a good CD to have if you favor people other than Eddie Murphy, George Carlin, or Richard Pryor among others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great July 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was a GREAT college album. After seeing its ranking on Amazon, it sounds like it's still doing well. That is amazing.

Martin's humor was a great way to get through tense college days. He is in a world all of his own, but it is an interesting world, that's for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve Martin at His Full Stand-up Brilliance February 25, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have not had a chance to check out other Steve Martin releases yet, but this one has convinced me to go out and get them all. The stuff is still as fresh and funny as it was when it came out, and I feel tons better finally knowing where the famous "I just want a girl with a good head on her shoulders" tirade came from. After Bill Hicks' work, this has to be my 2nd favorite comedy release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kenny Rogers Opened For Steve Martin August 31, 2008
Format:Audio CD
In May of 1978 we finally got to play the main room at Harrah's in Lake Tahoe. Bill Harrah, like Steve Wynn, ran a class act hotel. An ordinary room at Harrah's had two bathrooms in every room and a TV in every bathroom. Imagine what the suites were like, not to mention the view of the lake and the fresh air. They were all second to none. The first time we played the main room, Kenny (Rogers) was the opening act for Steve Martin, who was still doing stand-up in those days. As anyone who's ever seen Kenny's show knows, he gives out a handful of autographed tambourines during the first song of every show and asks the recipients of his gifts to play along. No one thought to explain this to Steve Martin. The people with the tambourines couldn't keep them quiet during his monologue, and this distracted him too much to continue. But he was able to come up with a solution. The "Wild and Crazy Guy" jumped off the stage, ran through the audience, threw open the doors to the showroom, and ran through the casino screaming, "They're playing tambourines. They're playing tambourines, drain the lake!" -- Garth Shaw

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wild and Crazy Guy! October 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD
What a wild and crazy guy! What is really nice about Steve Martin is that he is funny without being vulgar and charms with his enthusiasm. As an artist and a person, he hasn't grown into cocaine or freebasing, but into a person most people would find talented and level headed. He has done the things that many comedians dream to do, stand up, movies, TV and writes books. He is not the greatest comedian who ever lived or among the greatest but might make a big impact by steadly growing as an artist and not crashing and burning into flames. This album is a classic of Stever Martin during his stand-up and Saturday Night Live days. He was there when it was new and great and so was he. He still is very good and reliable.
